New exhibition opening Saturday 23 May. Social distancing measures observed. Catalogue available here from 22 May.

Collection: Tim Snowdon | Oil painting

Tim is best known for his ‘unstill’ approach to still life themes. Elements such as leaves fluttering across the canvas and garlic skins floating on an imagined breeze give presence to Tim’s otherwise classical scenes.

“I try to paint images that are interesting as tactile compositions. Sensual illusions. I want my paintings to be accessible, engaging, to give pleasure and meditation about possibilities.” – Tim Snowdon

Snowdon gained invaluable experience living in New York, London then Paris, supporting himself by painting and decorating. In 1990 he earned a permit as a copyist in the Louvre. A long tradition dating back to just after the French Revolution where each year 250 permits are granted to amateur and professional artists, allowing them to copy the works of Old Masters. The masterpiece of Tim’s choice was Philippe de Champaigne’s “Le Christ Mort”.
